Yes, you are seeing LOTS of "what to wear with" - especially with scarves. You can't imagine how many requests I received... But I like these little vignettes; even if you don't want to buy or wear the scarf, the colors in the scarf can be a great springboard for a few well-coordinated outfits!
And for great scarf tying ideas, check my friend Mai Tai's site; she is the complete GENIUS of scarf tying...

A scarf without a lot of color in it can be a challenge, but I think of scarves as silk jewelry. As such, this scarf, for me, became something made of silken pearls, and a of a burnished, brushed pewter that just happened to be fiber rather than metal.

It would be so easy to build an entire wardrobe around these shades of rose, grey, taupe, coral, peach and slate blue... ... View the Post

Someone asked me to suggest a few outfits to go with the lovely Les Parisiens scarf. This particular coloring is a perfect opportunity to mix warm beiges or browns with black, so I took that as my motif.
Please note that I'd be more than happy to suggest outfits to go with any scarf - it certainly doesn't have to be Hermes. Just post a comment with a link to a picture of your scarf, or email me a picture at email@example.com, and I'll take a look! ... View the Post
I received a question about what could be worn with a specific Hermes scarf - one with a lot of brown, beige and camel tones in the center, and a bright green border. My suggestions include all of the shades of brown, gold, white, and navy, which is always so nice with bright green...
And a lot of these clothes come from J. Crew. I've been spending a LOT of time lately in the local J. Crew store, gift shopping, and I've found that they stock a large number of nice-quality basic garments. Maybe not to your taste, or your budget, but certainly they are good "thought-starters".
Have a lovely weekend! ... View the Post
